Overview

Wedding planner Kelsey McKenna just signed on to a dream gig. She s going to be the day-of coordinator at the beautiful Higgens Estate in California wine country. There s only one problem: the wedding was originally planned by Babs Norton, the self-proclaimed Queen of Wine Country Weddings, who the father of the bride has fired.

Kelsey decides to clear the air with Babs and make sure there are no hard feelings, but before she can throw herself into executing the perfect wedding, she discovers Babs dead on the floor of his office. David, Babs assistant is quick to point the finger very publicly at Kelsey. Even worse, Kelsey learns that with the big day only weeks away, the bitter little man has sabotaged her new clients wedding by canceling all the vendor contracts.

With the help of her friend Brody and assistant Laurel, Kelsey must scramble to salvage the wedding while dodging gossipy wedding planners, grumpy winemakers, and a cold-blooded killer in this smart, funny cozy.

In Coopers disappointing follow-up to 2016s Terror in Taffeta, wedding planner Kelsey McKenna finds herself in trouble after discovering the body of a colleague, Babs Norton, the self-proclaimed Queen of Wine Country Weddings, in Babss San Francisco office during a professional call. After the memorial service for Babs, Kelsey returns to Babss office to picks up some files only to be accused of murder by Babss shrewish assistant, Stefan Pierce. Kelsey feels compelled to investigate for her own self-preservation, enlisting the help of her resourceful assistant, Laurel, and photographer friend Brody Marx. Along the way, Stefan disappears, and Kelsey encounters a tipsy sister of Babs, a smooth CEO of a Napa winery and his rude winemaker brother, a good copbad cop duo, and a volatile father of the bride. Callous behavior by Kelsey, plotting problems, and loose ends contribute to a less-than-satisfying read. Agent: Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Agency. (Apr.)
